Ryo Okumoto is a Japanese keyboardist/organist famous from American symphonic prog rock band Spock's Beard. However he also recorded several solo albums:
 
 
His best album is "Coming Through". He shows lots of jazz-rock, symphonic and other prog rock influences ther. Lots of Hammond, mellotron, piano and Moog show offs.

I see no harm if he goes either to Eclectic or Jazz Rock - I'll see what people think.

I think Eclectic is better decision. He has some jazz fusion elements, but besides he has more different music, so JRF isn't a best label, I think.
